Grief Tourist Strigoi Expected 28th October 6 songs 7" EP from Leeds' Grief Tourist a new band from former Pulled Apart By Horses drummer Lee Vincent. Short hardcore punk bursts! Grief Tourist were formed by drummer Lee Vincent and inspired by Ceremony’s ‘Rohnert Park’ album. You can tell, too. “I would send GarageBand recordings to Rich [Wells], who lives in Leeds,” says Vincent. “He would scream over the recordings and record them on a dictaphone in his front room, then send them back. The recordings had that gross quality we wanted, so we definitely wanted to replicate that when we recorded properly. He’s upgraded to screaming in his mate’s carpet shop now.” Morgan Sinclair completed the line-up and off the trio went to a Perspex Flesh show, which also influences their bludgeoning punk.

Seazoo Teeth Expected 29th July 7" single from North Wales bderoom-indie-popsters Seazoo.A pop nugget featuring skuzzed guitars, restored chapel organ and Terry -â?? the old Korg synth. The B-â??Side, Skulls, was specially written for the release, but turned out much better than planned. It almost took the A-â?? Side slot for a second, and has split the band. They’re still speaking to each other, barely. As ever, all sounds lovingly cooked-â??up and recorded at home. Too Pure 7" Pre-Order
Vincent Vocoder Voice 500,000 Hymnals Limited 7" single from Vincent Vocoder Voice who recently played in town with Meet Me In St. Louis! The Brighton band play weirdo-experimental post-punk Too Pure Singles are proud to announce our August release will be Vincent Vocoder Voice: foolosopher, dilettante, drunk. “500,000 Hymnals” is a meditation on obstacles to meaning, the clawing to delineate a pursuit of some desperately needed – yet indefinable – action of salvation; the floundering of indecision, twisting for an escape between slamming doors. God speaks us into being, sets us adrift in history … and disappears. “Heidegger's Gruel” is an illustration of such torsion through the embittered eye of a free, wise failure: wisdom becoming a Möbius strip leading one back to idiocy, unable to live, to do the simplest things; emancipation from superstition resulting in a longing for some unnamable greater myth that we find ourselves too wise / stupid to believe in; liberation as vacuum, void … the realisation that we'll never truly escape how the world moulded us, and that finding sanity in an insane world is enough to drive one mad.

Grim Brides Faithless UFO Leap Super limited red 7" from Danish noise-experimentalists Grim Brides This is most definitely the gnarliest thing that the Singles Club has had the 'joy' of releasing. It is as much an offence to music as it is brick to the face brilliance. We emailed back saying we'd love to release the single, over a year later they responded with 'YES'...and here we are. New track 'I'm Gonna Be Sick' continues the punishment and is music for the end of the world. Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road delivered the masters saying that they were un-masterable and we probably owe them for new speakers. All we know about Grim Brides is that they have made these two songs, that they are (apparently) from Denmark and perhaps aren't aware of caps lock, but my oh my we want to know more. MUCH MORE.

Cowtown Castle Man Expected 18th March 7" single from bonkers, party-indie Leeds three-piece Cowtown. With three albums to their name and a history of being on nearly every DIY line up in Leeds since they formed in 2005, they’ve created quite the cult following in their hometown, but still remain one of Leeds’ best kept secrets. Zine legend Karren Ablaze once said that they should be playing on world stages, but you get the feeling that they’re more content with the small, tightly packed venues that they’re used to.

Produced by Matt Peel (Pulled Apart By Horses/Eagulls/Autobahn) at Nave Studios in Leeds, ‘Tunnel Vision’ is a blend of squealing whammy guitars, reverb laden falsetto vocals and growling hooks.
